Top 5 Manchester United Matches In The Last Decade

There is no doubt why Man united are the best team in the country,with some exciting matches. From their champions league who against Chelsea and 8-2 thrashing of rivals Arsenal,the matches has always been dramatic.
Here is the list of the top 5 Manchester United matches in the last decade:

5)Man united 8-2 Arsenal August 2011 :

Really a neutral should have loved this match.Arsenal were into the match,with their stars Fabregas,Nasri having left the team in summer.
United were coming to the game after a win against spurs.
United were looking to establish lead early in the match and when Welbeck scored in 20th minute and when RVP failed to score from spot, it was united all the way in the match. A Rooney hat trick,a young brace and goals from Nani, Park summed up the match for the Red devils. While for Arsenal, RVP and walcott scored.

4) Man United 5-2 Spurs April 2009

Some of the greatest comebacks by any team. Spurs took a two goal lead in first half, thanks to some of the worst defending by united defenders. After the hair dryer treatment, Ronaldo and co, came with all guns blazing and Ronaldo scored from the spot and suddenly, an united comeback was on. Eventually United won the game 5-2 with goals from Rooney, Tevez and a brace from Berbatov.

3)Man united 3-2 Aston villa april 2009:

When title race seemed to swing towards Liverpool, United wanted to win their match against Aston villa in old Trafford. Though Ronaldo scored first, the visitors scored twice and again CR scored for united and when they were going for the win, substitute Macheda scored in the last minute. It certainly had to be one of the best matches for the red devils in the last decade.

2)Man united 4-3 Man City September 2009

When Michael Owen comes into the mind of Man united fans, his last minute goal against their arch rivals is the feat he will be remembered for. When Man united sold their ace players Ronaldo and Tevez in the same year they were written off at the beginning of the season. With Tevez moving across to the Etihad stadium the derby fight intensified like never before and the match was always going to be close. Rooney scored inside four minutes which was equalized by Barry, braces from Fletcher and Bellamy made the match looked like it was going to be a draw. But in came Owen scoring a last minute wonder. It should be the best Manchester derby in a long time.

1)Chelsea 1-1 Man United (united win 6-5 on penalties)

May 2008,all English CL final had all the dramas. Goals from CR and Lampard in first half and in extra time, Drogba was sent off. As the penalties came knocking, Ronaldo missed and when Terry slipped and Anelka’s failed to score, the trophy was all united’s, which has to be the top match.
